    agreed-try flying into a neighbouring country and taking a train/bus-you are gonna be very,very lucky to get cheap flights during the world cup and hotels will be at a premium too.

    Thanks, sounds like a good idea, will look into it :thumbsup: Hotels sorted..thankfully!

    I read somewhere last week that to fly to SA is costing about £4000, but you could get there for about £800 if you flew to Greece first and then used KLM or Greek airways to get to SA.

    Any idea which airport in Greece?

    It's only £761.50 with virgin for 7th to 27th june.
    Cheaper to be there longer than to pay the premium flight
    prices I would imagine..............
